This hotel is magnificent. We didn't stay there but you are able to go inside all the hotels in the resort and this one is a victorian masterpiece. We sat in awe with our coffees and admired the decor. If in Stresa do visit.

We enjoyed a 3 course dinner with fresh ingredients and classical cooking. Service was perfection. After the meal, we took a stroll along Lake Maggiore.

Lovely food, lovely staff, great views. We ate here every night during our stay at the hotel. Food was always very good. Only negative was that the main menu didnt change over our 10 night stay.

We had cocktail hour and then some. Drinks and appetizers were excellent...not exactly inexpensive...but well worth the fantastic setting and impeccable service. A rare treat.

My wife and I had lunch here on an extremely rainy day. Our meals were excellent, and the service was impeccable. It is expensive but well worth cost. The dining room is absolutely beautiful. Would always return.

Featuring in Hemingway's 'A Farewell to Arms', with a Hemingway Suite and Bar, and in many ways little changed in style from its 'Belle Époque' days, this is a distinguished grande dame, with elegant decor and a dramatically dominant position on Stresa's Lake Maggiore waterfront....More
